Rasho Nesterovic News


Radoslav "Rašo" Nesterović (Serbian Cyrillic: Радослав Нестеровић - Рашо, Slovene: Radoslav Nesterovič), usually referred to in English as Rasho Nesterovic (born May 30, 1976), is a Slovenian professional basketball player. He also holds citizenship in both Serbia and Greece. He is currently playing for the NBA's Indiana Pacers.

Nesterović was born to Serbian parents in Ljubljana, Socialist Republic of Slovenia, SFR Yugoslavia. He started playing basketball in KD Slovan youth team. Later, he played among the juniors in Partizan Belgrade.

Because of the Yugoslav wars, he moved to PAOK Thessaloniki. While playing there, he obtained a second citizenship (Greek) in order to avoid EU restrictions. In order to obtain Greek citizenship he had to administratively change his name in the eyes of Greek law. While in Greece and other EU contries, he thus competed as a domestic player under the name Radoslav Makris.
